    1. Hi Roseanne, usually in 3 to 5 days. Usually they tell you when to return to claim the card.

    1. Hi Roseanne, it depends on the remittance company. Merong the same day, the next day, up to 3rd day. Yong mga longer ay usually wire transfers using an intermediary bank

    Hello as OFWs who wanted to enroll and activate BPI online? What would be the process since malayo sila sa Pinas to activate using ATM machine?
    ANSWER:
    Hi mica, yes, you can. You don't need a BPI atm machine. You just need to check the option that you are abroad. This is how to enroll in BPI online banking while abroad.

  7. Ok Salamat. As OFW, ano ba magandang BPI type na e-open considering that I am far from Philippines, at yung low maintaining balance, low charges in every online payments at hindi madaling madeactivate yung account. BPI easy saver, BPI Express Teller, or BPinoy? I will be opening it pagbisita ko sa Pinas. Please advise me. Thanks

  8. Hi mica: Since you're an OFW, I think you can maintain a 3k savings account, the BPI Express Teller account. If you like, you can open at a BPI Family Savings Bank, so the maintaining balance will be only 1k. BPI and BPI Family uses the same online banking system. You can send to either a BPI or a BPI Family account. You can avail of the same services.
    BPI Easy Saver has no maintaining balance, but it charges 5 pesos for every debit, either online or atm or at stores.
    BPinoy is for OFWs and has no maintaining balance, but this is offered by BPI's purely-internet bank BPI Direct. For this account, you need to open it online at bpidirect.com. Then you have to go your designated branch to present your IDs and get your atm card. This is a good account for you too. For all accounts enrolled in BPI online banking (EXCEPT EASY SAVER), there's no fee to pay bills, to transfer money to enrolled BPI accounts, to check balance, to buy mobile loads.
    If you plan to transfer to unenrolled BPI accounts in the future, download the BPI app from Apple AppStore or Google Play to your smartphone and activate the transfer feature, and then activate it a BPI atm machine.

  9. Hello Ms. Nora. I'm a domestic helper at gusto ko sanang mag open ng account sa BPI. Between these two options ano ba ang mas maganda na magagamit at makakapag execute to online payments at mura lng yung maintaining balance, BPI Express Teller Savings? Or BPI FAMILY SAVINGS ACCOUNT- Express teller Savings type?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Venus: Mas mura yong Express teller atm-only account of BPI Family Savings, kasi 1k lang ang maintaining balance. Okay na ito kasi isa lang din naman ang online system ng BPI at BPI Family. Yes, you can pay bills, buy mobile load at other payments na puede sa Dragon Pay at Pay Pilipinas

    1. Hi raymond rosary: Sinubukan mo na bang mawidro yong 1k+ mo or 500? Anong response? Insufficient available balance? Hino-hold ng BPI para sa maintenance? Kung hino-hold yan, sa yo ko lang nalaman na nagho-hold ang BPI ng maintaining balance.
      Sorry pero kung hino-hold nga yan ng bank for maintenance, hindi mo mawidro yan kung wala siya sa Available Balance. Puede ka ring magpunta sa branch mo at magtanong. Huwag mahiya

    1. Hi Rowena: anong BPI account ito? Yong atm-only account na 3k pesos ang maintaining balance? Ang balance ba is 3k or more? If yes, active pa siya kasi na-maintain naman ang required balance. Pero kung less than 3k, na-penalized ang account ng 300 pesos a month starting from the 2nd month na hindi na-maintain ang 3k. Kung naubos na yong balance, na-automatic closed na.
      Sinubukan na ba niyang nag-balance inquiry sa atm?

    2. Easy saver po yung walang maintaining balance po.. Pede pa din daw po kaya mahulugan yun.

      Delete
    3. Hi Rowena: Kung Easy Saver, yes, puede pa. Active pa yon. Nado-dormant lang ang Easy Saver kapag after 24 months of no deposit or withdrawal.

  13. Hello po ask ko lang wala na pong balance savings account ko then almost 6 months narin po ako hindi nakakapagdeposit active pa rin po kaya yung account ko?

    1. Hi michelle, regular account ba itong account mo? Hindi siya Easy Saver? Kung regular account, sorry, most likely, closed na ang account mo, kasi once na nag-zero o nag-negative na ang account, automatically ma-close na siya. Pag 2 consecutive months na below maintaining balance ang account, ma-charge siya ng 300 pesos, and every month after, at pag wala nang 300 pesos sa account, mako-close na siya.
      Mag-open ka na lang ng new account, at try your best to maintain it.

    2. Try mong mag-balance inquiry sa atm. Kung "no existing account" or "account closed" ang response, closed na ang account.

    3. pag my laman pa po ung account nasa 10k pa..hindi po ba mawawala after 5years..

      Delete
    4. About 10k balance: Ang maintaining balance ba ng account mo is 10k? or lower? If yes, hindi mawawala ang laman ng account mo, pero dapat huwag mong pabayaang walang withdrawal or deposit within 24 months (2 years). If your account does not have at least one withdrawal or deposit within 24 months, your account will become dormant. Your account will be put on hold -- you can't withdraw or deposit until the time you go to your branch with your IDs and reactivate your account.
      Note: Checking accounts become dormant after 12 months of no withdrawal or deposit.

    1. Hi Marvic: It's great na panay ka lang deposit without withdrawal para makaipon ka ng malaki. Happy for you. Oo kasali ang atm or debit savings account sa dormancy rule. Pero safe ang account mo kasi deposit ka naman ng deposit. Kahit hindi ka nagwiwidro basta nagdedeposit ka, hindi magiging dormant ang account mo. Ang nagiging dormant ay yong walang deposit o walang withdrawal within 24 months. I hope you will save a lot.

    2. thanks alot mam.. and i want to ask sana po kung anung savings savings account ang may malaking interest. im planing to open a 2nd account is there any suggestions po?thank you

    3. Hi Marvic: Gusto mo bang mag-ipon sa Pag-ibig MP2? After 5 years mo makuha ang ipon mo. Mas higher ang dividend rate ng Pag-ibig kesa time deposit rate ng bank. Puede kang mag-enroll online. Go to the Pag-ibig Fund website, then click MP2 Enrollment System.
      I hope you're also paying your SSS contributions, kahit yong 550 lang (minimum for OFWs) so you can accumulate CYS or credited years of service.

  16. Hi Ms. Nora. My BPI Family account just became dormant since there were no transactions done in the last 2 years. What is the procedure to reactivate? I'm currently abroad and have no access to any BPI banks in this area.

    Replies
    1. Dormant BPI Family account: The normal procedure is to go to your branch with your IDs and reactivate your account. You will sign papers, so they require personal appearance. You can call 63 + 2 + 89-10000 for mobile phone and international access.
      Don't let 10 years pass without reactivating your account. After 10 years of no activity, your money will be given to the Philippine Treasury.

  17. Hello po! I'm just worried po kasi nag open ako ng savings acct. with a 3k maintaining balance at pinababalik po ako sa 21 para sa atm card po. Ang problema ko po, wla po binigay sa kin na deposit slips na nag open ako ng acct. at 8k po dneposito ko po. Nawala din kasi sa isip ko dahil sa sobrang kakulitan ng anak ko nong nag oopen ako ng acct.. Ang tanging binigay lng sa kin ay ang acct. number ko lng na isinulat nya sa isang papel at sabi pwde daw ako mag withdraw over the counter in case need ko mag withdraw at wla pa atm card ko. Ok lng po ba yun khit wla binigay sa kin na deposit slips? Pls. Help nman po.

    1. BPI account opening: Dapat merong deposit slip. Pero nakita mo naman how the officer processed your forms and your deposit? Either siya mismo ang nag-process ng deposit sa PC niya, or dinala niya sa another teller at na-process? Kung ganito na na-process, okay ang account opening mo. Di ko lang sure kung bakit di nabigay sa yo ang deposit slip. Mga 5 days pa bago 21, so para mawala ang worry mo, magdeposit ka ng 200 pesos or more sa account mo bukas, Monday, at the same branch where you opened or any branch of BPI kung BPI ka nag-open at BPI Family kung BPI Family. Kung tatanggapin ang deposit mo, okay ang account mo, at magkakaroon ka na ng deposit slip.

    1. Hi Kristina: Dapat mini-maintain ang account. BPI ba ito? Bank of the Philippine Islands? Ang maintaining balance ng BPI atm account is 3k pesos. Kapag dalawang magkasunod na buwan na below 3k ang average daily balance, babawasan na ng 300 pesos na penalty. At sunud-sunod na yan na monthly penalty kapag hindi na-maintain. Dapat ngayong April 17, lagyan mo ng 7k para wala nang penalty this April 30. Pero kapag wala kang 7k. Dapat lagyan mo ng 300 pesos para merong pambayad sa penalty on April 30. Then on May 1, magdeposit ka ng 3k pesos, at huwag mo nang galawin. Dapat araw-araw merong 3k sa account.

    3. Hi kristina: You just hope na lang na the account has not yet been closed. If you like to know sooner kung active pa ang account or closed na, try to deposit 200 pesos today. Use the account number at the back of the atm card. Pag tanggapin ng teller yong deposit mo, ibig sabihin ay active pa yong account. Kapag hindi, sasabihin ng teller na hindi na active, or closed na. Kapag closed na, yong owner lang ng account ang puedeng mag-activate in person. Kung hindi na ma-reactivate ang account in person ng owner, sabihan mo yong nagpadala na bumalik sa bank or remitter at i-amend yong remittance -- change "Deposit to Account" to "For Cash Pickup" at BPI -- dapat merong reference number na ipapadala sa iyo para makuha mo over the counter at BPI
